Taliban is forming to be a ridiculed government since its formation and new cabinet ministers set to take their positions. Imposing Sharia law is one of the major setbacks for the citizens of Afghanistan due to its orthodox old beliefs which hampers the progress of a civilized society. These rules are widely affecting the womens in the country and a yet new practise has now caught the global attention.
A Curtain Dividing Men And Woman
Classes in universities in war-torn Afghanistan have resumed with curtains between male and female students. Pictures have surfaced on social media where men and women can be seen sitting on two opposite sides of the classroom with curtains between them.

The Taliban had earlier ordered that women attending private Afghan universities must wear an abaya robe and niqab covering most of the face and classes must be segregated by sex — or at least divided by a curtain. In recent years burqas and niqabs had largely vanished from the streets of Kabul, but are seen more frequently in smaller cities and towns.
Taliban Issues A Circular For Women
“Universities are required to recruit female teachers for female students based on their facilities,” the Taliban said, adding that men and women should use separate entrances and exits. If it is not possible to hire women teachers, then colleges “should try to hire old men teachers who have a good record of behaviour”.
While women now have to study separately, they must also end their lesson five minutes earlier than men to stop them from mingling outside. They must then stay in waiting rooms until their male counterparts have left the building, according to the decree issued by the Taliban higher education ministry.
These incidents in Afghanistan are a true evidence of various ill practises womens are facing, which they call it as sacred rites. However the whole world is closely watching the prevailing conditions and still the Taliban seems to not care about anybody.
